Donna has fond childhood memories of turning her parents' dining room and behemoth of a coffee table into stages for performances inspired by the likes of Liza Minelli, Rita Moreno, The Von Trapp Family Singers, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and her big sister Lisa. High school musicals and community choirs followed, as did many years of enjoying music and theatre from the audience perspective. In 2005, Donna found The Broadway Chorus and she has been singing and dancing and making believe with them ever since. She loves the collaborative energy that comes with being in The Broadway Chorus, as well as the leap of faith that everyone in the group takes with each new show.
If you ask Donna which Broadway Chorus role has been her favourite, she will probably answer with whichever role she happens to be working on when you come to her with the question. That said, some of Donna's favourite roles in BC productions include Mrs. Tottendale (Annie Get Your Nun, 2008), Zoe Dingleberry (There's Something About Fairy, 2012), and a tie between Minion 1 (Climb Every Other Beanstalk, 2017) and Amy's Mom (Bootie and the Beast, 2018). She also performs in Giggles & Gags, an annual sketch comedy show for charity, which was developed by Broadway Chorus alumni, and has danced in community dance productions such as Le Grand Continental (PuSh Festival, 2015) and the Solstice Dance at Mountain View Cemetery (2015, 2018).
Donna is forever grateful to the folks who come out to see our shows, whether it's once or time and time again. Without an audience, there is no show, and building these shows feeds each Broadway Chorus member in a unique way. So thank you all!
